Around this phone edges, It has cleverly implemented a grippy material that doubles as its antenna passthrough. While there is no  3.5mm headphone jack on this phone (but company provides a USB-C to 3.5mm converter in the box), the volume rocker, power button and USB-C charging port make their appearance here.
